Choose your material

Choosing the color of your natural stone or your engineered stone can be tough, using our visualizer tool may help?!

​Choose a backsplash

Customers have a variety of choices when it comes to backsplash options. There is no right, or wrong choice; backsplash can be added to create the look that you are wishing to achieve.

4″ High Backsplash
At EC, we typically give our customers the option to add a 4″ high backsplash for their granite countertops, bar tops, or bathroom vanities. Backsplash height can also be customized to the customers specifications.

Full Height Backsplash
Full height backsplash is also a popular choice for kitchens. Full height backsplash typically runs from the top of your granite countertops to the base or bottom of the upper cabinets. It provides a unique look and give extends the visual flow or grain of the granite.

​Tile is another option when it comes to backsplash. Many customers purchase tile to accent their countertops.
Combination (Tile with 3-1/2″ to 4″ high countertop splash)
Others use tile in conjunction with a 4″ high backsplash for a cleaner look.

Choose your edges

Whether you choose our standard eased edge, or want a more decorative edge like our ogee edge, the choice is yours. Selecting the right edge will help you achieve the look you want and compliment your stone and room.

Choose your overhangs

At Elegant Creations, we typically will add an 1-1/2″ overhang to the front of any countertop surface, including kitchen countertop, bathroom vanity, bar top, etc.,  and add 1″ to any open ends. This may be modified however, based on your cabinetry style and appliance placement.
Many times, we are asked the question, “How much of an overhang should my island have?’ While there is no standard answer to that question, we do not recommend an overhang larger than 12” without some sort of additional support, in most circumstances. We recommend a hidden support bracket be used, which we sell and would install.

Please keep in mind that there may be limitations on overhang sizes based on the room size, cabinetry, etc. By providing base cabinet dimensions, we can help determine your overhang sizes.
